The Buffalo Bills continued making moves on Tuesday during the NFL’s legal tampering period, reportedly agreeing to terms with linebacker and special teams performer Tyler Matakevich to a two-year deal worth $9 million.

Matakevich entered the league as a seventh round pick of the Steelers out of Temple in 2016 and has been almost exclusively a special teams player for them throughout his four-year career, collecting more special teams tackles than any player in the league over that time.

In his four seasons in Pittsburgh, Matakevich played in 63 out of a possible 64 games, picking up 77 combined tackles and a pass defended.

The 27-year old Matakevich joins defensive end Mario Addison and linebacker A.J. Klein as unrestricted free agents who have reportedly agreed to terms with the club over the past 24 hours.

Players can’t officially sign deals with new clubs until the start of the league year on Wednesday at 4 p.m. EDT.
